in georgia. it was in jackson. everybody wanted -- he was there to talk about spending deficit and debt. everybody wanted to talk about gun control. almost to a person everyone said the only reason why the government wants me to go through background checks is so they know what background i have and how many guns i have so they can take my guns. that's what the perception is. >> there's a lot of paranoia. the there is no such plot a foot from anybody involved. of course the president is out of touch with the sport with the family traditions. that's why the picture was posted. >> here's a simple solution. all gun control ought to apply to everybody that includes the body guards anybody who works for the department or agency. if you don't think i need this or that weapon to protect my family you don't need yours. i am saying all americans are worth the same. my family is eerie bit as valuable as anybody else's family when he works in congress or the branch. >> we have to leave it there. stay tuned. we are going to tell you what it takes to accurately predict the outcome of a football game
. it is amazing to me that natalie jackson involved in this case was representing sherman ware and now deny's george's impact on bringing that case to the forefront. >> sean: not exactly compatible what you are describing here with somebody that is a racist. let me ask you this. you had the ruling today. has been quiet in the case. this is going to heat up. national attention is going be drawn to this. the president has gotten involved. give us the latest and where are you go from here and for example what does george do? is his life totally on hold and now at the mercy of a jury at this point or do you have a chance to get this thrown out earlier? >> the motion to continue was denied. the jum judge believes we have enough time. we will abide by the ruling. i don't know how we will get ready for this case in the time we have left. i like ten to someone tell youth you are going build a 14 story building and you three months to do it. that could be set to be done but i don't know how it will be accomplished. really difficult realizeing that the key fence fund which is really hopeful on the su
when jesse jackson had to hold his nose and go to damascus to beg for the release of an american pilot who had been shot down by the syrians. drones are clearly the wave of the future because they save american lives, but they're also effective for surveillance. they have far greater use than simply the kind of fighters we've used, and we actually also use them for domestic purposes. they were reportedly used in the case of the 5-year-old who was held in alabama. they have been used for weather. there are an estimated 8,000 drones, so although it's part of the most secret program, military program, we have, there are also other uses. >> which starts to frighten folks domestically. good thing with the outcome of that alabama case, but some folks think their civil liberties are about to be infringed upon at home. dan, i know from your reporting and the book you wrote, there was more debate within this administration about the transparency aspect of it than there was whether they would engage in a drone program. explain that. >> well, that's exactly right, and that comes up significantly
